Two sisters have been accused of being ‘cruel’ for letting their sister-in-law sleep on the floor of their hotel room while traveling to attend their grandfather’s funeral.
In a Reddit post shared under the handle u/Fill-AD53467, how the girl’s father ended up reserving his daughter’s hotel room in order to keep the peace. explained.
But while his wife and two daughters-in-law accused him of “playing with favourites,” many online felt it was the sisters-in-law who exceeded the bar.
Here is an example of a conflict that can arise within a blended family. Each mixed-race family is unique, but research shows that conflict can erupt when teenage daughters are involved.

A study published by academics at the University of Virginia also found that adolescent girls in stepfamilies were more likely to leave their families than boys.
This particular bust-up occurred when the family returned from their father’s funeral.
Originally, the plan was for him and his wife Chantelle [name changed] Shares a hotel room with 16-year-old daughter Jenny [name changed] Her 17- and 19-year-old stepsisters shared a room with a “big” bed with “enough space for all three girls.”
However, around 11 p.m., I got a call from Jenny, who said she was “crying and sounded like she was arguing with her sister-in-law.” said they insisted that she sleep on the floor.
Afterwards, when he went to his room to further investigate the matter and asked his stepdaughter why Jenny was made to sleep on the floor, she replied, “It’s better this way…we’re more comfortable this way.” I answered.
Rather than react, he simply told Jenny to grab things because he was “booking a hotel room.” According to the post, his two daughters-in-law “both seemed angry” at this, but his wife was equally furious.
“She said I wasted my money and said Jenny could have soaked it up overnight on the floor,” he wrote. He showed me that he was playing with his patronage,’ and said that he had let his stepdaughters share a room and that he had rented the whole room to his daughter.”
Chantelle was angered by her husband’s response, but parent coordinator Sheryl Dennis, a family law attorney, said she could “grasp the significance” of the fact that both her husband and daughter-in-law lost their father and grandfather. I felt that I was not.

Still, she felt that having three teenagers in one room and sharing one bed was a recipe for disaster. “At the very least, the room should have had two beds and a cot,” she concluded.
Denise was willing to make some concessions to the two sisters involved in the controversy, but others on social media were less receptive.
